When your Membership Rewards® points get into the millions, your entire approach towards spending can change.

With 2,000,000 points, you can carve out a dedicated monthly shopping budget for use online and in-store, and add regular gift experiences to your calendar that will make amazing memories for you, clients and employees.
Cardmembers earn points on every whole £1 spent with an American Express® Business Gold Card¹ and, depending on where you decide to spend it, 2,000,000 points is worth an average of £9,000.

Take travel to the next level
Reaching 2,000,000 Membership Rewards points means you have more than a couple of travel options at your disposal – you have a dedicated travel budget to dip into whenever you need it. For instance, a first class Qantas return plane ticket from London to Sydney is around 400,000 points. Enjoy the bedding down service, which turns your suite into a luxurious bedroom with Sheridan bedding, including a pillow menu, 100% cotton woven throw, duvet, and memory foam mattress for an unforgettable night's sleep. If you've used your points to treat a companion, a comfortable leather ottoman means there's more than enough room for two if you'd like to dine together.
Your impressive collection of points is ideal if you have an office in another country or a key client you visit multiple times per year. For example, you could fly 15 times from London to Hong Kong on Virgin Atlantic. Their Upper Class tickets include a chauffeur-driven car service to and from the airport, stylish clubhouses and lounges to help you unwind before you fly, and the finest food and drink throughout your journey. For as long as you keep an active Business Gold Card, your points will never expire, so there’s no pressure to plan all of your flights in advance. Just pick up a luxury ticket whenever you want to see a client in person, visit a supplier to hash out a new contract or lead a remote team in person.
If you don’t have a head for heights or prefer the convenience of travelling by rail, 2,000,000 points could be transferred to Club Eurostar and used to buy 44 Business Premier tickets . That’s enough to take you and one other person, be they a colleague, friend, or family member, to any of 28 European destinations every two weeks for almost two years. This week, you could mix a business pitch in Brussels with a tour of the city’s art galleries and museums. While in a fortnight’s time, you could be on your way to a conference in Amsterdam, passing by tulip fields, canals, and windmills.
Another way to transform your travel is to use your points to book the best rooms in hotels around the world. For 2,000,000 points, you could book more than 50 nights at extravagant five-star Marriott Bonvoy™ hotels in destinations including Dubai, London and Los Angeles when you transfer them to Marriott Points . Every night in one of these special hotels provides maximum relaxation and comfort so you’re recharged and ready to take on anything that comes your way.
If you’ve not yet collected 2,000,000 Membership Rewards points, there are many ways to increase your balance, simply by using your American Express Business Gold Card.
Revolutionise your monthly shopping
Much like with travel, having millions of Membership Rewards points means you can do more than indulge in occasional shopping trips. 2,000,000 points could give you the equivalent of £375 per month of spending for two years. That’s a total of £9,000 you can spend online at Amazon.co.uk and Currys.co.uk (even more if you exchange your points for gift cards) or in-store at John Lewis, Selfridges & Co, Uniqlo, and many more retail partners.
With £375 of monthly spend, you can mix up your purchases to please clients with a Tea Party hamper from Fortnum and Mason, treat family with an Afternoon Tea Gift Box from Selfridges, and reward yourself with a Montblanc Meisterstück platinum classique rollerball pen to celebrate signing a big new contract.
You also have the option of using your points against the cost of purchases. 2,000,000 points could clear £9,000 from your Business Card statement. It’s completely up to you whether you take a bit off your bill each month or clear a larger amount in one go.
Treat your valued staff
One of the best ways to spend your points is by rewarding your staff for their hard work. 2,000,000 points give you an extremely healthy budget to treat them. In fact, you could spend up to £9,000 at Wine Direct, which could buy 36 Luxury Mystery Wine Cases to distribute to your most valued employees.
Alternatively, you could afford 128 massage treatments from Urban Massage, which offers convenient treatments by trusted therapists in the comfort of your own home. Perhaps you could even book a stress-busting treat for yourself.
With 2,000,000 points under your belt, you have a practically unlimited number of ways to use them. We hope our suggestions got you thinking about what you’d get the most from. To discover even more things you can do with American Express Membership Rewards, take a look at our tips and guides.
